On May 10, two employees from 1st Ed Credit Union visited Fayetteville Elementary School to read a story about saving and spending money to the second-grade classes. The story is about Mandy and Randy – a brother and sister that are learning how to save and spend their money. Randy wants a new football, but realizes it will take most of the money he has saved to buy it. He has to make a decision to either spend all his money or wait until he can buy his new football and still have money in his savings account. Each student received a copy of the Mandy and Randy book that includes financial education activities. The students also participated in an activity where they had to choose whether they like to spend or save and discuss the different places you can save your money such as a savings account or a piggy bank. As part of their curriculum, the second graders learn where you should keep your money, the difference between wants and needs, and how important it is to start saving when you’re young.
